Holga: well-loved for good reason

There's a reason why the Holga is a timeless hit with so many kinds of photographers: it takes amazing, distinctive images. The lens is plastic, and each individual camera imparts its own characteristics to the images it makes, but they all share a common style that lends itself to creativity and art. It has only one aperture (even though there's a switch that would make you think it has 2). So it's a point-and-shoot in the most literal of senses, as there's nothing to adjust besides

There's a reason why the Holga is a timeless hit with so many kinds of photographers: it takes amazing, distinctive images. The lens is plastic, and each individual camera imparts its own characteristics to the images it makes, but they all share a common style that lends itself to creativity and art. It has only one aperture (even though there's a switch that would make you think it has 2). So it's a point-and-shoot in the most literal of senses, as there's nothing to adjust besides the focus. You will not get perfectly exposed photos with this camera, but that's part of its charm. It's not particularly well-made; it's prone to light leaks and other imperfections, but that's also part of the charm. What you do get is a simple creative tool that makes you think outside of the box, and focus on your creativity, not technology. Despite its ultra-low-tech design, you almost can't help but make interesting images with the Holga. The 120N model is a great upgrade over the older 120S. It's exactly the same camera, but with the addition of a tripod socket and a bulb exposure setting. These simple changes made the Holga much more flexible, as you can use it in more lighting conditions (and the Holga makes dreamy long exposures at night!) The Holga is the perfect camera for anyone who is interested in getting into the world of film and toy cameras.

Please note: This camera is a toy.

I am a photography student and we had to purchase this camera for a project. The camera is easy to operate but it kind of broke on me within the first use. Not all of the cameras have this problem, mine was simply a lemon. Try shooting with it as soon as you get it, that way, if it is broke you can send it back in time. Overall, the Holga is a fine being that it is a toy, plastic camera.

So fun!!!

By

This is my first toy camera... and I couldn't be happier with the camera. For the Holga, it's less about quality than creative capabilities. This is a wonderful product, simple as pie to operate and yet conducive to multiple exposures and micro-click photography. I LOVE the 120 format film, especially the black and white film I also bought from Adorama.

Great affordable camera. Fun to find the unique look of the photos that come out due to light leaks, vignette, and Multiple exposures.

More fun than a barrel of monkeys!

By

I got this on sale at Thanksgiving, and what fun it is. It brought back all the fun of anticipating the results of the shot. Take a shot and no immediate feedback... wait to finish the roll, then wait for the surprise of seeing what you got. Found out that [@] develops the film for $0.84 (that's right, 84 cents!)and I scan them into digital myself. Where else can you have this much fun for that price...?!?

Mucho Fun

By

The Holda 120N. Ahhh. Great camera to play with. What I really realy like is that it has a hot shoe on it so you can connect a flash to it. It's built from plastic so it's not going to be as durable as a digital SLR but I knew that going into the purchase. There is 2 f stops (f8 & f11) and 1 shutter speed of 1/100th of a second. The camera is not complicated at all and is fully manual. If you are looking for something auto and durable this camera is not for you but if you are looking to play around with some 120 film and have fun with a camera and make some cool art this is a must get!

Thinking Holga - You're a brave soul

By

If you're thinking Holga you already know about "Holganess." It is well built for the plasticness that makes these goofy cameras so popular. Yes this is WHITE as white can be . Easy to load and unload film. The aperture does work. make sure you buy and use the cable release as it helps big time in getting a sharp shot (sharp Holga shot??? yes you do want a sharp shot as it makes the Holga effect more pleasing). Also, take notes when you shoot so you know what you were trying for when you took the shoot. Then get the film developed pronto so you can compare your photo vision to the result. If you're new it costs about $1 to get a shot developed and scanned onto a CD.

Perfect for some fun, basic photography

By

I purchased this camera as a gift for someone and they loved it. It is the perfect inexpensive camera to have some fun with. You never quite know what you're going to get when you take a photo with this camera, and to me that's the appeal. You can also get some really fun, artistic shots with it. The main bad thing is ordering the special film and getting it developed.

Better price than Lomography

Been wanting a Holga for a while and didn't like the prices from Lomogrophy. Much better value with Adorama!

Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  does the lens come off? in other words are there interchangeable lens for this camera be they simple plastic ?
GENE L  Not really. You can easily disassemble the camera and remove the lens from the body, but there are no other lenses I am aware of that will fit in its place. There are lens adapters available that fit on top of the Holga lens: wide angle, macro, and telephoto. Of these, I have the wide angle, and it's fairly useless.
Harlan K  What is the format of this camera?
JAMES F  Camera takes 120 or 220 film. Will do a 2.5x2.5 inch using provided Film mask or a 2.5x3 inch using another provided Film mask.
Curtis N  Does this camera have a hotshoe for use with the Holga flash unit?
ROBERT F  yeah, the `120n (at least when I bought mine) has a hotshoe for the holga flash-- like you'd expect from a lomo camera, it's just a simple flash trigger, but hey it's old school! Hope that helps!

The Holga camera was first made in Hong Kong in 1982 and uses 120 roll film because that was the most widely available film in China at the time. It’s name, disputed by some, purportedly comes from the Chinese phrase ho gwong meaning “very bright.” Read More
